Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for the Quest for the Spark books:
"A cheery jaunt back through a beloved world." --BOOKLIST

Praise for the BONE series:

Kirkus Reviews
The lovably motley questing crew returns for their final stand against the looming powers of the Nacht. Young turnip farmer–cum-hero Tom Elm has finally reached the arduous apex of his journey: The scattered pieces of the Spark are quickly coming together, as are all of the beings needed to complete his epic quest. A charmingly quirky assortment of dragons, animals, a warrior, Bones and a shape-shifting forest spirit must work together to save the fate of their world. They must keep the horrible dragon named the Nacht from taking over the realm and shrouding all they know in permanent, nightmarish blackness. This is no simple feat, and they must battle truly frightening foes on their way to the final showdown: a colony of possessed, bloodthirsty giant bats that have enslaved most of a human tribe. This final volume does not disappoint, twisting and turning rapidly to a wholly satisfying—although quickly resolved—conclusion. The Bone universe has smoothly spread out from a serialized graphic-novel epic to a thrill-ride prose trilogy, an accomplishment not often seen nor executed so well. Fear not, fans: A new Bone adventure is not-so-subtly hinted at as this installment draws to a close. Thrills, chills, twists and turns, this series ender offers it all. (Fantasy. 9-13)

    This is book 3 in the Bone: Quest for the Spark series and despi

    This is book 3 in the Bone: Quest for the Spark series and despite having read the previous two, this book was absolutely delicious! Sniegoski writes with such flavor and detail and paired with Jeff Smith's amazingly colorful illustrations appearing from the cover to the last page this book just screams read me. Bone is about a boy, Tom, who sets out to save his village and family from the dark evil terrorizing them all and posing a horrific threat. But when his air balloon crashes and he and his friends are separated, the adventures of reuniting is many.Will Tom and his menagerie of vastly different friends overcome the hurdles they're faced with and retrieve the last piece of the Spark needed to defeat the Darkness?
